Update- Friday, November 23, 2007- Death of a Gnome
The show opens with Vernon standing alone in the pub, eating chips. Liz gives him a call on his cell phone, but he can't hear her, so he goes outside. The police see him, and start waving their arms and telling him to leave the pub. Having seen too many American movies in which someone is "surrounded", Vern puts his hands up. Finally, someone gets close enough to tell him that there is an unexploded bomb in the neighbourhood, and he heads off to the community centre.
Meanwhile, Sonny and Sean are figuring out how to get out of Jamie's house unseen. Sean comes up with the brilliant idea that Sonny go out the back way. As Sonny prepares to leave, he suggests that he and Sean can continue seeing each other so long as they are discreet about it. He leaves then, and promptly runs into a police officer, who gives him what for, and then asks if anyone else is at Jamie's. Sonny says there isn't. Sean stays in Jamie's house and ponders the situation. What a decision: have sex, or don't (further) betray a friend...
Back at the community centre, trauma victim Vern has a blanket wrapped around him and is drinking a hot drink. Liz seems to be annoyed with him, and not really that overjoyed to see him.
Hayley strolls in with a pair of new boots, and Roy gets upset because he didn't know where she was and couldn't reach her.
Paul wanders from boring conversation to boring conversation.
Tracey catches David's eye and, being so discreet herself, blows him a kiss.
The police blow up the bomb, and in the process, blow up Ashley and Claire's garden gnome.
After the Bomb
David follows Tracy to her home, only to have her shut the door on him.
Sean manages to get out of Jamie's house, and runs into Jamie and Michelle on the street. Michelle goes on alone, and Jamie stops to speak with Sean. He asks him if he met up with Sonny. Sean tells him that he wasn't able to, and leaves.
Later, Sean goes to the Rover's. Jamie is there, and tells him he knows that Sean used his bed because his duvet was on the wrong way round. He is none to pleased that Sean used his bed to have sex with Sonny.
Sonny then comes to the pub. What follows then are a bunch of double entendres between Sean and Sonny about what Sonny likes doing with whom. At then end of it all, when Sonny confirms that their afternoon was excellent, Sean, in a pleased sort of way, picks his teeth. I don't think we want to know what he was picking out of his teeth.
Steve has been lurking around during this Sonny and Sean routine, getting a jab in every once in a while, and managing to be rude to Tracy as well. When he uses the facilities, Tracy comes up behind him and accuses him of using her to make Michelle jealous. She warns him not to do so.
The seamstresses are angry that Kelly is working for Carla for less than minimum wage, as they are concerned that it will drive their wages down, too.
Claire phones a caller from the "Women in Crisis" phone line, and Ashley is worried that she is getting to involved with the client.
Ashley and Eileen mourn the loss of the garden gnome, Mr. Grumpsy, by kicking his head like a soccer ball.
